Spring break fishing trip

  • 4 of 5

House meets all your needs!! Very quiet area as well. Owners were very nice. The poor area has been taken over by these small biting flies and we couldn't stay outside in the area after 5 in the evening. So beware if u are visiting Carrabelle anytime soon!! They seem to be worse in the river area than the ocean and beaches. This wasn't any implications of the house bc it met all our needs. The back door is very hard to close and open and with the bugs outside it was a must to keep them out. I purchased citronella candles and left for future renters. The WiFi was a bonus and very fast!! The drive along hwy 98 is really pretty as well!! Thanks

nice and comfortable house very nice property managers.

  • 5 of 5

we had 4 adults and 1 child and there was plenty of room. the people that rented us the place were very nice and it was very easy. the house is cute, could stand a new dishwasher, the one there works but the front is cracked and a little hard to open. a/c works great, has wifi and cable tv. dock works for boat, it is not a floating dock so be careful how you tie your boat up. overall we had a great time, swimming over at dog island is wonderful. the town has a grocery store not to far from the house and the people are friendly.

thanks for a good time.

Great cabintype home on the river complete with dock and screened gazebo to protect from yellowflies. Close to everything in town and a short drive to Wakulla Springs and great state park. Robin Hilton was great to work with. For you fast food people Subway is your only choice. The Junction has the best ice cream ever!!!

Truly enjoyed a long weekend (mid July) at this clean and spacious home on the Carrabelle River. Although the dock lacked shade, fishing was good in early morning. Caught several small catfish and a 5-6 lb. redfish. Agent very responsive and helpful. Beds comfortable with onsite laundry and available kitchenware.
